Another miracle on the way

Friends, Romans, countrymen (and women), lend us your ears. We have some exciting news to share that we've been keeping to ourselves for some time.

14 weeks in fact.

We are expecting our second child in July, the 16th to be exact.

As you can imagine, this has been exciting and a little scary after what we went through with Daisy. We have been tremendously blessed with Daisy, she is such a miracle - a shiny, lovely little spirit who talks like a magpie and is on the verge of walking all over the place any day now.

This second "bean" was not planned, we had talked about maybe having another in a year or so, but apparently this whole baby schedule thing is beyond our control. So far this pregnancy has been the opposite of what I went through with Daisy - while I was indeed sick with Daisy I never was extremely sick and wowza, this new kiddo is making me one sick puppy. During our drive out from California I threw up almost continuously for the first 200 miles, the poor Yukon still hasn't recovered.

We are hopeful that this time the little Janney bean will stay put the entire 40 weeks - of course, I look at it one day at a time. I am 14 weeks along today, everything looks really good so far and it seems that the "all day evil sickness" is starting to let up a bit. I went in for a special ultrasound today, one that shows if the baby has Down Syndrome. Everything looked great, the little booger is in there just hanging out, growing, making me eat all of the time.

Oh yeah, and they just happened to catch a shot of what might be a little "ooh hoo." Yes, you read that right, the odds are good that this bean is a boy.

OH BOY. ;)

And to think, our Daisy, the little preemie - is going to be a BIG sister!

I have attached some pictures of the newest Janney. I hope you enjoy!
